Christmas is almost here.

December has been a busy time for us with work down at the Garden, planning for 2011 and packing mail orders. I have to say that there are times when having an industrial unit would be appealing as Di and I have had all weathers thrown at us as we get orders ready to send out to customers. We have been delighted at the number of new customers who have placed orders for our growing kits - the salad and herb planters continue to be our most popular products with an increase in the number of chilli growing kits, salad hanging basket kits and tomato hanging basket kits ordered this year.

The snow hasn't caused too many problems for us although it has meant that I haven't been able to get into work everyday (I have been able to work from home instead so that wasn't so bad).

Despite all that we have been able to send our orders out on time and hope everyone finds the chocolate santas that have been hidden in the parcels!

Di spent a few hours down in the vegetable garden, on Saturday, and harvested more potatoes, carrots and beetroot which went to the local shops for sale - they were hardly on the shelves when customers were snapping them up.

Best go now as I have to pack an order to ship to Alabama!

With best wishes to everyone for the festive season and 2011.
